We enjoyed the 4 for 44 Wednesday night special. The beet salad was flavorful and fresh and the pot roast was very tender and perfectly prepared with several roasted vegetables. Excellent experience and we will return when back in Napa!

We really enjoy the food at Cuvee, but what keeps up going back is the no corkage policy. You set your own corkage and the full amount is donated to a local non-profit that serves kids. Wonderful idea and we wish more places did this.

We had a delicious dinner here. Food was great. I'd go back again

Great place, great food,great staff
Food was amazing. I had the scallops and my husband hat the pot roast. Both excellent choices. Server was great, waitstaff all attentive and professional. Food was amazing. (can't say that enough) this was our first time to Napa and we had just gotten in around 8pm. It was nice that we went to cuvée on recommendation of the hotel. Convenient and great food.

I was very surprised walking
I was very surprised walking in to this restaurant. I have driven by many times and never thought about going inside until someone said it was one of her favorite restaurants. It is quite beautiful inside and has nice courtyard seating. The food is good and very nicely presented, but I would say it is definitely erroneously listed as a $$ priced restaurant in the open table guide. It should definitely be $$$, as it is more on the pricey side. The fact that you can bring your own wine makes it worth it however, and the corkage fee goes toward a donation to the non profit they have chosen at that time.

The brunch was great. I would definitely go back again and I have recommended Cuvee to several people since then. The service, food and atmosphere were all exceptional.

The food we ordered was amazing. Only comment we have is the menu selection was small. Although the food we had was amazing it would have be great to have a bigger selection to chose from.

Great food, great wine, and wonderful service. This is one of our all-time favorite restaurants. We have always had great meals at Cuvee!

Lovely meal a little pricey
Can't go there without having the charcuterieplate - which isn't on the dinner menu. Also highly HIGHLY recommend the mushroom ragu and the chicken (served over a sizzling plate). Lovely staff.

I've eaten at Cuvee a number of times and always find myself going back. I had the chicken, which I adore and my father had the scallops - which were big, tender, rich and wonderful. The cuisine isn't too innovative, but it's very very enjoyable.

Great place! Had one jolt
Great place! Had one jolt to our experience. When we came in for lunch at 12:30 we were the only diners there (Bottlerock day). After about 20 minutes, another couple came in and were seated at the NEXT table. It broke up the ambience.

Innovative food choices
Food was very good and innovative! Highly recommend.

Perhaps we lucked out because it was Mother's Day and most of Napa was celebrating at Bottle Rock concert, but the restaurant was virtually empty. It was everyone elses loss because we had a fabulous meal, with a great waiter who provided excellent service. I'd go back again in a heartbeat. The food was outstanding from the beet salad to the main course (my scallops per perfectly seared) to dessert. We were all extremely pleased that our family was able to reunite for this special day at this special restaurant.

The experience was great. My sandwich was very creative with arugula and radish. My partners chicken, was cooked to perfection. We have to return again.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our group of four was pleasantly surprised both at the quality of the food and how reasonable the prices were. The calamari was light and very tasty, the potato brule was amazing and the Mac and cheese was awesome. That was just for starters. My rib-eye steak was well prepared, the cut of beef could have been a little better. I had the smashed red potatoes as a side and they were well prepared but I was expecting smashed and not puréed. They still tasted great. We sat at a chair and booth combination at the window near the bar. The booth was awkward to get in and out of and my wife and I in the booth were seated noticeably higher than our guests across from us in the chairs. We will definitely return on the future.

This place was kind of dead for a Friday night when we went but they have a really nice set up, great service and really good food. Location wasn't awesome as it wasn't walkable from our B&B or near shops etc of downtown Napa, perhaps that is why no one was there. No corkage fee which was nice.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Cuvee is outstanding
The food is mouth-watering and not exotic but truly perfectly prepared. Cocktails are a nice add on too for a great night out. I highly recommend Cuvee if you truly like really really well prepared food in a wonderful dinner setting.

We had a delicious meal while relaxing in the outdoor eating area. Food was wonderful, wine was great, and our server recommended the right choices.

Great chicken dish
Service and food were excellent. Try the chicken. Great presentation and very delicious.

Great to dine outdoors on
Great to dine outdoors on couches with a fire pit in the middle of the courtyard.
Everything we ordered was great. Calamari, chicken entree and especially the croissant bread pudding with peaches was awesome. Since we first tried the restaurant we make it a point to come back every trip to Napa. Very relaxing and beautiful ambiance.

First time experience, our
First time experience, our group of six dined there before attending a performance at the Jarvis Conservatory. We were all impressed with the ambience as we walked in the door. All six of us enjoyed the signature cocktails and the food and service was outstanding. Our only regret was having to leave so soon after the meal to attend our show. We will be back!!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was Outstanding from the minute we entered the restaurant until we left. Each course was spaced giving us just the right amount of time to finish without feeling rushed. There was an extensive wine list even if you chose to order by the glass. One of the main courses are a pot roast which was cook to perfection and vey flavorful, as was the chicken. Two of us ordered steak which was cooked jut the way it was requested. The side of spinach with garlic was tender yet not over cooked as it can be and the garlic was not over powering. We each had a different desert that we shared and they were all outstanding. We will definitely return on our next visit to Napa.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfectly sized portions
The food at Cuvee was very good. Each plate is perfectly sized to allow for a nice 3 or 4 course meal, so plan accordingly to get a wonderful meal.

We shared - Shrimp and Grits
We shared - Shrimp and Grits The shrimp were fresh, just cooked enough to be tender but not dry. The "grits", seasoned just right to compliment, yet not over power the delicate shrimp. shared a hanger steak with fries, a side of spinach. They steak was cooked exactly like we asked, fries were to die for. The spinach with lemon and garlic just a bit el dente which is the way it should be. We had the espresso crème Brule. The sugar crust was thin and cracked with a slight touch of the spoon. the custard was creamy, not too sweet, and just rich enough. . Service could improve greatly. We had to ask for plates, sharp knife to cut the steak. wine to be opened, table candle lite. They were however friendly.

The new chef has brought back good food for lovely experience at Cuvée. The service and new menu has revitalized this lovely restaurant.

Fit for a Foodie
I brought my Mom here as part of a milestone birthday celebration trip to San Francisco and the wine country (we live in Michigan). She has traveled the world extensively and is very vocal (and critical) about food. Mom raved about the food at Cuvee! She also loved the outdoor seating and ambiance of the place. Our waiter, Norbert, was new to the restaurant but did a fine job with the service.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were a party of 4. Made reservations that same day. The restaurant was pretty empty since it was a Tuesday night. Had wonderful service, food and even dessert, the fresh berry cobbler! Our only knock of the place were the "flying saucer" plates. Cool to look at but unwieldy and messy to eat off/out of. If you happened to spill/drop any food on the edges, you ended up with food either on the table or in your lap. Thankfully, we heard they are getting rid of them! We would go back again!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cuvée is an amazing restaurant!! I've been here for many things, from my anniversary to my mothers birthday. I am never disappointed. They have excellent food and amazing customer service!!

Great food and service, sat outside by the fire for dinner and the atmosphere was perfect! Waiter was very helpful, made great suggestions for food and wine, and my husband and I were able to sit, eat, drink out bottle of wine without ever feeling rushed. Bonus - we stayed at the River Terrace Inn so we could just walk home!

Very cozy setting
Went here with friends and loved the outdoor dining, food was fantastic. We sent back 2 of the mixed drinks due to taste and the waiter had no problem; great service.

ANOTHER TOP FOOD EXPERIENCE IN NAPA
My friend and I loved this restaurant. We both enjoy and savor fine, gourmet food. The STAFF was amazing (from the hostess to waiter to server). We enjoyed a great Napa Valley Cabernet Reserve wine from Raymond's Winery while sharing some delicious food. I recommend the fig salad, steamed mussels and duck confit. NAPA is all about food and wine. This is a restaurant that confirms it.

For fantastic food and good service, go to Cuvee. We enjoyed a wonderful meal on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was almost empty. We were confused by the lack of a host and could not find anyone to assist us. The bartender was missing, no servers were visible and no host at the door to greet us.
Once we were found things went smoothly and a good time was had by all.

Checked every restaurant
After checking every restaurant near downtown Napa, Cuvée was only one to fit all our requirements.Easy parking, great menus,pleasant surroundings and more.

Good place for an intimate dinner.
We have spent few days in Napa and choose to have dinner at Cuvee on one of the nights. It was a good choice. The restaurant was quite empty due to the streets blocked for Thanksgiving parade. The intimate atmosphere, one can say, was preventing us to read the menu and their long wine list. As in other dim places, we have asked the waiter for a flashlight. He did not have one. After a while, I went to another room, properly lit, to read the menu. Our waiter was very patient and did the best to provide menu details.
We had stripped bass, which was excellent and flat iron steak, also very testy. At the waiter’s suggestion we shared a Chocolate & Pinot dessert, which was very good
